Art of Building

Now in its fourth year the Art of Building is becoming the leading photography competition for digital visions of the built environment. Thousands of people enter from all over the world with the aim of celebrating those industries and people who build our skylines.

Unlike other photography competitions the Art of Building reaches out to the public by showcasing these visions on construction hoarding; turning under construction sites into public art galleries.  The 2012 competition raised thousands of pounds to support the work of Article 25, an international development NGO, and their projects to build disaster resilient schools in Haiti.  To find out more, click on the banner to the right.

 
     
 

Carbon Action 2050

One of the ways we can be most effective for the public good is in the role the construction industry plays in the struggle against climate change.

The aim of Carbon Action 2050 is to provide the industry with guidance to reduce the UK’s carbon emissions to 80% of its 1990 level by the year 2050. Much of the information can be applied globally, despite it being based on UK policy. Its strategy is to find practical ways of saving energy and carbon that can be implemented straight away, and then spread the word among project teams, in particular project managers, clients, architects, building control personnel and environmental specialists, who can act as green champions.

To support their efforts, we have published a range of papers on our Carbon Action 2050 website which covers the best ways to design, build, run and refurbish a building, as well as how to take the lead on carbon reduction, backed up with a series of case studies and a comprehensive table that explains who is responsible for doing what.
